I enjoyed the @lovearctually discussion for this book! This cover is so cool too!

❓Who enjoys true crime and serial killers?

Phoebe is in a phD program studying serial killers and more. Her deep dive into all of them makes her look at people about more cautiously and has some funny ideas about some of her new neighbors. Well she is the new neighbor actually moving into to clean out her father’s house after he passes away.

It was interesting following the mc as she was working on her graduate papers and her program. Especially with all these distractions of her brother and his relationship, going through her father’s things and the attractive guy that lives next door.

Phoebe has issues with commitment and seems to stop anything and anyone before they get too close. It’s a defense mechanism but I don’t think she wants to be alone. She just doesn’t want to get hurt, emotionally of course.

Turns out that reading nothing but true crime isn’t exactly conducive to modern dating—and one woman is going to have to learn how to give love a chance when she’s used to suspecting the worst.

PhD candidate Phoebe Walsh has always been obsessed with true crime. She’s even analyzing the genre in her dissertation—if she can manage to finish writing it. It’s hard to find the time while she spends the summer in Florida, cleaning out her childhood home, dealing with her obnoxiously good-natured younger brother, and grappling with the complicated feelings of mourning a father she hadn’t had a relationship with for years.

It doesn’t help that she’s low-key convinced that her new neighbor, Sam Dennings, is a serial killer (he may dress business casual by day, but at night he’s clearly up to something). It’s not long before Phoebe realizes that Sam might be something much scarier—a genuinely nice guy who can pierce her armor to reach her vulnerable heart.

Thank you berkleyromance and netgalley for my honest and voluntary review.
